(If you look closely, you can see me and running buddy Christina to the right. I'm wearing a blue jacket, and she is to the left of me wearing a black shirt.)
This was the Shamrock 5K in the parish park, and poor Rindums didn't get to run due to work. She did get to come to Starbucks with us (Hello, delicious cherry mocha). I think she was glad afterwards that work came first. After I told her about El Chupenerabe (don't ask), the super huge wall of a hill after the one mile mark. After I told her about the five mud puddles (I had to undress on the mat in front of the door inside). After I told her about jumping two creeks.
It. Was. AWESOME.
(I look like I'm not running fast, but I was, promise!! LOL.)
I found out I LOVE trail runs. I always loved to hike through the woods as a kid, and this was just a faster version of that. I finished at 35:40, which was over what I wanted to finish at (35 mins), but I know I pushed myself as hard as I could. And that made it totally worth it.
Oh, and for funsies? Last night I swam 400m, biked 12 miles, and ran a mile. You'd THINK I wouldn't have had trouble sleeping. You would be wrong.
Dang stinking Coke Zero at 3 p.m.....
Happy Easter to all!!!!
